A Forum reader recently asked:
"How can I create/modify groups using the command line? I need to figure out how to handle eDirectory groups under LDAP. I have Novell 8.8 installed on Windows server 2003."
And here's the response from Aaron Burgemeister ...
Hacking groups from the command line (via LDAP) is simple enough. You just need to be sure you modify both the user AND group sides of the link. Given this example:
User: groupMembership securityEquals Group: members equivalentToMe
... you need to modify both a user and group to add these things:
dn: cn=admin,dc=user,dc=system changetype: modify add: groupMembership groupMembership: cn=admingroup,dc=group,dc=system - - add: equivalentToMe equivalentToMe: cn=admingroup,dc=group,dc=system dn: cn=admingroup,dc=group,dc=system changetype: modify add: member member: cn=admin,dc=user,dc=system - - add: securityEquals securityEquals: cn=admin,dc=user,dc=system
